Quickie: Install ColdFusion 7.02 on Ubuntu 7.04 with Apache 2.2.4
Once again, may not be the best, but installing ColdFusion 7.02 on Ubuntu 7.04 (Apache 2.2.4 already installed).
Ubuntu 6.10(Edgy Eft) Apache2, PHP5, MySQL & Coldfusion Install Howto provided some inspiration, with changes made as necessary (per my Apache 2.2.4 installation).
Downloaded 7.02 Developer Edition from Adobe (coldfusion-702-lin.bin) to src directory.
cp coldfusion-702-lin.bin coldfusion.bak
cat coldfusion.bak | sed "s/export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/#xport LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/" > coldfusion-702-lin.bin
sudo sh coldfusion-702-lin.bin
Server Configuration. Choose a server configuration. Choose Apache.
httpd.conf directory = /usr/local/apache2/conf
Program binary = /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd (default)
Control file = /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl (default)
Continue with installation.
Administrator = /usr/local/apache2/htdocs (default)
User = apache
Password = *****
Don't enable RDS.
Downloaded 6/16/06 zip file from http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_17883&sliceId=2, with wsconfig (wsconfig.zip) and saved to src directory. Extracted to the same.
sudo mv /opt/coldfusionmx7/runtime/lib/wsconfig.jar /opt/coldfusionmx7/runtime/lib/wsconfig.bak
sudo mv wsconfig.jar /opt/coldfusionmx7/runtime/lib
sudo /opt/coldfusionmx7/bin/coldfusion start
In the window that pops up, choose 'Add...'
Configuration Directory: /usr/local/apache2/conf
Check 'Configure' box.
Control script: /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl
sudo nano /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf
Ctrl + W for directoryindex, which should have index.cfm already added (your call if you want to add anything else at this point).
sudo /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl restart
http://localhost/ should still work, and http://localhost/CFIDE/administrator/ will put you at the Administrator login to finish up there (the server should configure itself, and you should be able to click on a link to continue to the administrator).
Creating a quick file ...
sudo nano test.cfm
<cfset testvariable = "Testing." /> <cfoutput>#testvariable#</cfoutput>
